Bubs & Toddler

The benefits of starting swimming from a young age are immense. Our Bubs & Toddler Programs are for babies and toddlers aged from 2 months through to 3-4 years of age, who are swimming with a parent in the water. Bubs & Toddler class are generally grouped according to age, with a maximum of 5 students per class (6 on Saturdays and off peak times). Bubs & Toddler classes are $18 per lesson, per child, although we do charge by the term.

Free Newborn

Start your baby on their aquatic journey with our free 8 week newborn class. This is an educational and stimulating water familiarisation program that will promote bonding, movement, and social, emotional and physical development in your child. This is as much an educational program for parents as it is for the babies, as we will teach you a number of simple exercises that you can do at home, to encourage and develop your child’s love of the water.

Toddler 3 

2-4 years

Children in this level are socially and emotionally ready to take direction from an instructor, but still want mum or dad close by for reassurance. Kids can expect to build on skills learnt in previous levels, but with more of a focus on safety, taking turns, and following directions from the instructor. As their confidence grows, parents will participate less, remaining on the step to get children ready for lessons without mum or dad in the water.
